Chassidim and their funny beliefs...








FYI, "אדמו"ר אור ישראל מסטאלין זיע"א" was born in תרכ"ט, which made him all of 5 (!) years old at the time of the story. By the way, Reb Hirsh Margolis was the elter zeide of Dov Eliach, mechaber of ",הגאון" and no fan of Chassidim. Funny how these things work.

if he was born as you say in 5659... and the story took place in 5634, how do you gather he was 5 years old... he wasnt born yet.

someones got their dates/math wrong. maybe me.. i dont know.

Oops. it is me! I misread the chof as a nun.

5629 is what I said, Shmuel, not 5659

That is what a real chosid is all about.

jony klutz said...

Shmeryl Tzeitelbeitel said...

I think that Unknown and jony klutz is the same person, they both say the same thing and misspell 'beliefs'

Milhouse said...

I wonder if the date is a misprint

Not such a funny belief.It's similar to the inyan found in the gemureh of "psoik li psukcha" and using a chaider yingels possuk as a sign min shomayim.
On the other hand if anyone thinks you are supposed to "listen" to what a 5 year old has to say, based on the 5 year olds intellect, that indeed is a starnge belief, that hopefully the Tzig is not pushing

lubavitch rebbi - as recorded in the "igros hakodesh" - had problems with time frame & names, regarding the "geniza chirsonos" letters, he came up with a very simple explanation "the story must be true yet the writer (hamatik)did not do a good job, espeicialy when he was in a rush".

intresting to note: the writer only made mistakes when it came to dates...

I Karlin they have no problem with a Yenuka Rebbe in the crib, so they dont censor,or apply,or trying to be apologetic. This is their Belief system
